How Can We Know That Jesus Existed?

by Tim Chaffey, AiG–U.S.
October 26, 2012

The Bible is God’s Word, and since God cannot lie, we know that His Word is true. The Old Testament prophesied that Jesus would come, and the New Testament tells us a great deal about His life, ministry, and death. Therefore, we can be absolutely certain that He did exist. This truth is confirmed by the majority of scholarly historians...

Exciting News for Film Short Competition at the SAICFF!

The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF) is pleased to announce that the winner of the Best Dramatic Short Film Jubilee Award, bestowed during their annual Jubilee Awards Ceremony, will now receive an added benefit — the opportunity to contract with EchoLight Studios to produce a feature-length film with a budget up to $250,000. This opportunity is being made possible, thanks to EchoLight Studios’ decision to sponsor the SAICFF’s Short Film Award.


In light of this development, the SAICFF has officially extended the deadline for all film submissions for the 2013 Film Festival to October 31 (the feature film deadline remains November 15th). Next year’s festival will be held on February 7-9, 2013 at the Gonzalez Convention in San Antonio, Texas, culminating with the Jubilee Awards Ceremony to be hosted the evening of February 9.

“We are thrilled by EchoLight Studios’ sponsorship of our Best Short Film Award,” noted Doug Phillips, founder of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival.

“This sponsorship is not only a vote of confidence regarding the significance of our festival, but it’s also a boon of enablement for a Christian filmmaker who has demonstrated excellence through a dramatic short film to now be better poised to produce a full-length dramatic feature. This exciting development could well serve as the means to help a Christian filmmaker’s long-term dream come true. The message is this: Those who are faithful in the little things will be better equipped to pursue bigger projects.”

EchoLight Studios is a 21st century studio, producing and distributing family-friendly entertainment. EchoLight has a full film distribution platform servicing theatrical, home video, digital/VOD, and broadcast in both US domestic and international markets. EchoLight’s sponsorship of the Best Short Film Jubilee Award is a new step for their studio as well as for the SAICFF.

“We have long aspired to not only showcase the best in independent Christian filmmaking at our festival, but to actively invest in the movement by helping dedicated Christian filmmakers reach for greater heights in their craft,” Phillips remarked. “One of the ways we’ve done this in past years is through our $101,000 Grand Prize Jubilee Award, and we are now pleased to extend another large financial opportunity to the winner of our Best Short Film Jubilee Award, thanks to EchoLight’s generous sponsorship.”

The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF) and Jubilee Awards was founded by Doug Phillips in 2004 and is held each year in the Alamo City, drawing film submissions from around the world. Among the awards bestowed at each year’s festival are: Best Dramatic Short Film, Best Commercial Advertisement, Best Documentary, Best Promotional Media, and Best Feature Film.

To learn more about the film submission categories, entry rules, and how to submit visit the SAICFF website.

Submit your film now to compete for the $101,000 Best of Festival Jubilee Award.
